“Since I started diving almost 20 years ago in Greece I thought already that the underwater world is the best place to be! After becoming a Dive Master and Instructor in Dahab I was loving to sharing my passion with all my students and showing them the beauty of the sea. Now being part of Dive-Careers training candidates so they can do the same with their students is fantastic. It is great to be able to teach in so many different locations and meet so many people around the globe. And again we are not only teaching the IDC’s, Dive-Careers has also a very big network for employment after the IDC. So it’s fun to see that so many of you candidates are working in a lot of places around the world.
Being a Course Director is great but being able to work as a Course Director in Thailand, South Africa, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Philippines, Italy and India that is fantastic and we are not done yet!!!!!! Being trained by the best I can say that working for and with Dive-Careers is by far my best career.
